CelebNMovies247.com reports that Sunday afternoon, Squad helmer James Gunn debunked the ongoing rumors in a Twitter thread as he slammed rumor-spreading websites.
Earlier in the week, a rumor making website tried to do a cast reveal of The Suicide Squad, and that seemed to have pulled the right string to get James Gunn to respond.
Gunn said when responding to a fan’s question about discussing the Poison Ivy casting:
We are?? And it’s not true. It’s BS like most stuff off this particular site.
Coincidentally enough, the director also debunked rumors that circulated last month about Warner Brothers’ upcoming offerings at DC FanDome later this month.
The Suicide Squad at FanDome:
Despite the previous debunking, Gunn and the cast of The Suicide Squad will have a presence at FanDome on August 22nd, though the extent of the involvement is unknown.
Warner chair Ann Sarnoff said in a press release announcing the event:
There is no fan like a DC fan.
